Criminal Litigation: Practice and Procedure provides a thorough and practical guide to all areas of the law and practice with which the aspiring criminal litigator needs to be familiar. Written with the LPC in mind, this book is suitable for both the core module of Criminal Litigation and the Advanced Criminal Practice option.
Case study documents are used to demonstrate both common documents and skills required of a criminal practitioner (e.g. bail application, plea in mitigation, bad character and hearsay) and, in addition, examples are used throughout the text to illustrate points of complexity. Completed copies of the most important court forms are included where appropriate, and invaluable flowcharts can be found at the end of each chapter to assess understanding of the topics covered.
Statutory authorities and case law have been updated to May 2019 to take account of recent developments in the law, in particular the Policing and Crime Act 2017, the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 and further changes to the law as a result of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012. The latest version of the Criminal Procedure Rules (2019) is also considered.
